When you need something extra decadent and fruity in the morning, this strawberry mascarpone stuffed French toast is the best recipe.



For the Filling:

  • 2 cups sliced strawberries
  • 1/8 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 8-oz container mascarpone cheese
  • 1/8 cup powdered sugar

For the French Toast:

  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/8 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 8 slices challah bread
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided
  • Powdered sugar, for dusting


  1. Combine the strawberries with the granulated sugar in a medium bowl and stir to combine. Place in the refrigerator to chill for at least 1 hour, or overnight to allow them to macerate.
  2. Beat the eggs well in a large, shallow baking dish. Add cinnamon, nutmeg, buttermilk, and vanilla. Beat to combine.
  3. Coat the surface of a large frying pan and add 1 tablespoon of butter. Place over medium heat and allow butter to melt, tilting the pan to coat.
  4. Soak two slices of bread in the egg mixture, flipping once, until drenched, about 1-2 minutes per side. Transfer to the hot pan. You will work in batches of about 2 slices at a time, depending on the size of your pan.
  5. Cook until browned on one side, about 2-3 minute per side. Using a spatula, flip bread over and repeat with the other side. Add 1 tablespoon butter to the pan between each set of slices and repeat the process, continuing until all of the bread is coated and cooked.
  6. In a medium bowl, combine mascarpone cheese and powdered sugar, and stir until well combined. Using a slotted spoon, add the chilled strawberries to the bowl and mix gently to incorporate.
  7. Spread 1/2 cup strawberry filling between two slices of cooked French toast. Repeat with remaining filling and French toast slices. Dust with powdered sugar, and serve drizzled with maple syrup.
